For manuscripts that are selected for peer review, the length of time between the submission and decision will vary widely (from 6 months to 12 months).

Can I make changes to my manuscript at the proof stage?

Although you will receive proofs from the editorial office before your manuscript is published, the purpose of these proofs is to pick up inaccuracies or typographical errors. You will not be able to make editorial changes (e.g., changes in wording, adding references, etc.) at this stage. Indeed, it is essential that you ensure that the version you submit for publication in IJHPM is your final version.
